The Ultimate Burden

25 Aug

In today’s New York Times BOB HERBERT wrote an op-ed entitled The Ultimate Burden, in which he lays out the basic problem with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as the broad apathy of the American public. His op-ed brings up an excellent point about the inability of the American people to really fight for anything anymore.

What has happened to our society since Tom Brokaw’s ‘Greatest Generation’? At what point did we no longer take our Nationalism seriously? I’m not sure but certainly is an article that will leave you thinking.
